Aquaculture Field Schools implementation in Kenya
The Farmer Field Schools approach pioneered over three decades ago, has continued to advance in both context and content. A lot of of impact studies have demonstrated FFS ability to empower common interest groups and support technology transfer. It is based on this premise that IFAD funded the Kenya government through the State Department of Fisheries and Blue Economy, the Aquaculture Business Development Project (ABDP). The project is being implemented in 13 counties of Kenya.
